MIHA KOSMAC alias Planet Rick is an artist from Slovenia, currently living and working in London, UK. Unrestricted by style, Kosmac’s output often highlights his restlessness of mind and spirit, wandering between his distinct styles as soon as he feels too familiar or predictable in what he is creating.
Heavily influenced by the paintings he produces as Planet Rick, his upcoming exhibition presents a series of paintings that can be described as modern Impressionism. Academy educated but rooted within the street culture he actively participates in.
Growing up in a city, Kosmac frequently traveled by bus, making train journeys somewhat of a treat, a special occasion. Visually, the train offered him countless possibilities through image-making; the complexity of the engine, the windows and their reflection of the outside world, the face and rear of the machine, the tracks in which it’s route is pre-defined. Spiritually, the romantic notion of constant motion is something Kosmac heavily identifies with. Through repetitive drawing and obsession with this marvel of modernism, the artist presents heavily stylised and abstract colour compositions that form a bright camouflaged plain across the canvas.
